Steve Jobs has always been Apple, and Apple has always been Steve Jobs. The two names are synonymous for one another, but for the last year Apple, his friends, and his family have had to do without the iconic CEO, as today marks the one year anniversary of his death.
As a sign of remembrance, Apple has posted a short video “Remembering Steve Jobs”, temporarily replacing their homepage. The video features both iconic and candid photos of Steve Jobs throughout the years, and is interwoven with some of his most famous quotes and moments from various important product launches, including the iMac, the iPod, and the iPhone.
Following the video the default homepage returns, with the usual featured product section being replaced by a short note written by Apple CEO Tim Cook, which reads:
A message from Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.
Steve’s passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us. I hope that today everyone will reﬂect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place.
One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We share the great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.
I’m incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products that our customers love and dreaming up new ones that will delight them down the road. It’s a wonderful tribute to Steve’s memory and everything he stood for.
